    Graduate Environmental Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newmarket, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Arcadis UK (Newmarket, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Video interview to begin with. Did not hear back for a really long time, would chase up and be told that they are running behind on the recruitment process. Was invited for an interview 10 months after I had done the online video interview. The interview was laid back and informal. The interviewers were very friendly and easy to get along with. The interview was heavily focussed on asking questions about the modules I had covered so they could determine if my skill set would be relevant. Was told I would hear back by the end of the following week, however I had back earlier and was offered the job. Start date was just over a month later due to other graduates that were starting at the same time having to serve notice periods.

    First completed an online interview, then I had to do a quiz or two. After which, I was invited to a group assessment followed by a personal interview. It was not a very tough process. For me the hardest part was getting through the CV screen.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Arcadis UK (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly straight forward, I applied that night, they got in contact with me the next morning, talked about my circumstances, why I want to leave my current firm, any clauses with current employer. All very professional! I attended the first interview with two senior persons and received extremely positive feedback then second interview was the following week where it was with another senior person. Had a great conversation about persona interests and professional work life, of course including the subject at hand. After that, received a further telephone call a couple days later, being told that they are really interested in me and want to offer me the position there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arcadis UK in December 2015.

    Interview

    After a month from the application, I received a mail with a personal link to a website where I had to do a recorded interview.
    You can record only one time, you can't know the question before and every question has a countdown.
    If the interview goes well, you will be contacted from a recruiter who will tell you what happens next: a skype call, an interview or a test in one assessment center.
    Not good communications between recruiters and managers. When you arrive in the assessment center, it seems nobody has read your CV before the interview.

    • What are you passionate about?   Answer Question
    • Wich subjects did you enjoy the most at university?   Answer Question
